X Factor: Westlife tip Janet Devlin to win28/11/2011 17:47
X Factor is starting to hot up as it enters the final stages and boyband Westlife have tipped fellow Irishman Janet Devlin to win.
Speaking exclusively to Yahoo! omg! Shane told us: “Janet reminds me of Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries.
“She’s unique and different and of everybody she has the voice to sell records.”
Speaking to us on the last ever day of UK press for the band – who recently announced they are retiring from the music scene – Shane added that he wasn’t that impressed with this year’s talent.
He said: “The contestants aren’t as good as last year. There’s no 1 Direction, no Matt Cardle. There needs to be one of two massive stars but this year people are watching more for the judges’ banter.”
Speaking about what makes an X Factor star successful after the show Shane told us he reckoned it was all about the song choices.
“With Janet it will all come down to the songs. Leona Lewis had a proper worldwide single.”
